Leslie Lynn Priddy Spielhagen, age 75, of San Antonio died peacefully on Monday, October 21, 2019 after a long illness. Leslie was born in Chicago, Illinois on May 7, 1944. She was raised in San Antonio and graduated from Alamo Heights High School. Leslie attended Texas Christian University where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in History.

Leslie and Bobby married and settled in Beeville, Texas where they raised their family and spent many joyful years. Leslie will be remembered as a loyal wife, mother, and friend.
